Box Dioramas by Talwst

Canadian-Trinidadian artist Talwst created these little dioramas built inside of ornate jewelry boxes.

“I want the viewer to open the box and feel they have been transported to another world.”

"The work's small scale allows me the opportunity for a very particular kind of meditation. The overarching theme is related to time and space; to my sense of the vastness and the fragility of the world which I inhabit; and my fleeting memories of this world."

Talwst has a solo exhibition at the Art Gallery of Mississauga through 12th April.
